With Black Friday madness on the horizon, most people fall into one of two camps: those who couldn't possibly care less, and those who are already making their shopping lists.
But even if you hate the holiday, there's no denying that the opportunity to score a great deal is at least a little enticing — especially when you can shop online and dodge the crowds altogether.
That being said, you still need to shop smart and make sure you’re really getting your money’s worth.
Whenever people think of smart bulbs, Philips Hue always comes to mind, but there's a new name in town — Sengled — that's looking to shake-up the lighting world with lower costs and some very unique applications.
While you may not be familiar with Sengled, chances are you're already using a Sengled-made product in your home — the company is an OEM component manufacturer for some of the world's largest names in lighting.
Let's take a closer look at how Sengled can brighten up your lifestyle with app-controlled bulbs, embedded speakers, and more!
Special thanks to Sengled for providing a selection of smart bulbs for this review!
